Jsdgo Douglaa recently deelaired "that thia Government wa eatabliahed by the while eaen of ine Continent for H e bene fit of white men, to be administered by while saea." Upon thia the New York Time (Republlcun) comment- a follow. "If thia be true, we must y that (here BJBjBjtJ hardly be a better reaaon; but un forteoateJy Fur Senator Douglaa, and equally vMafsVtsuaatciy fur the Chicago Gortnsus, for the eery earn reason, our aapient fore father ought tu have excluded all white men seept BBlihmen and Dutchmen, and their eWesendants. "The experience ot the world is all ayee," when ued in the Doeglae OBe. a a teat ef the capabilities wis race, means clearly the experience ot the werieeJnre a particular race ha been haowa or h-en in existence.

Were they not Bunk In tht loweat pit of political tad reUgeua deg redation! Why were they et placed under he am ban aa the ne gro, until they had exhibited some vmp. tomaof returning vigor and what haa the experience of the world to aay to them! The French have now and then revolted Bgaieet their tyrants, sad so hav Germans, ao4 o hare the Italians, and so hav the Irish, sad so hav the black, and in every est the revolt, if successful, haa been fol lows by sbnm nsble excea, by which "Ike eperinro of ths world" must have kose lauMflsely disgusted. If ths lesrned Raaator can get up nothing better than thicks; re?maging op his old store of his oelesl lllastrstios. w think he bad better ar.je.ff. Tbsrs is oo comfort I for the whits man. nor the "white baela" either, tobe found in ths history of moat I European races. They arc slaves to-day, and have I. pen slaves for centuries, slave who influence their government aa In tie for good or evil, are aa little responsible fot Its acta a any fr nigger in the State of New York, and anything that history can aay to ennaign the negro to political damnation, falls with equal force upon the molly crowd whu swarm to our ahorea from all qtiartora of the world, and who, with the marks of the knout or atick atili fresh on their white beiis," glory in their skill in managing 'he affaire of nations." While profesaing fo be s democrat, Judge Hovey ia catering lo the prejudice of the black repuhlieana and relying upon them chiefly for his election. He hopes by throw ing dust into their eyea lo deceive enough democrat, German especislly, to secure hi election. We have no objection to any mm, native or foreigner, voting for him that want to do so, but we wish every man who hae n vnte to cast for him to know whst he is doing when he depositee It. Hovey is the black republican candidate, lie is with them and they are for him. Every body know, or ought to know, that they don't vote fur men uiileos they please thean. Hovey suits them and they ault him. Show us a man's company and we can eoon till you who and what he is. Will Germsn sud other naturalised democrats unite their vutea with those of black repub lican lo aend to the Congress of the United State a man, the candidate of a parly whose leading newepapera where they dare speak out discourae about Ureignere as doe the N. Y. Times (black republican) in the foregoing extract. The editor don't conaider any to be white mn in the proper sense of the word except "Englishmen and Dutchmen (Hollanders) and their descend ant." He say, "our aapient tathera ought to have excluded other from political rights and privileges juet they did the Indian and me negroes." He sneer st ths ides of "French or German, Irish, Italian, or Roasian cap city for self-government," and ask "why were they nut placed under the aame law a negroer!" Sic. Ha y that the German ana Irish end moat European race "are slave to-day and have been slaves for centuries;'' aud he adds, "anything that history can aay to conaign the negro to po litical damnation fall with equal force up on the moily crowd w ho swarm lo our shores from all parte of the world, and who, with marks of the knout or stick upon their white hsses, glory in their skill iu manging tl.e affair of nation." Tht is the way the more out epoken of the black republican preeaea apeak uf our naturalised citisena, and we leave it with the latter to ay whether they can reconcile it to their aelf respect and their man hood tu vote in election with any such party either for Judge Hovey or Judge any body else. It will b ohaerved that the Times, in the extract wc hsve given, classes the Germans an J the Irish with "free b groes" think they are quite a reepects ble a the negroea but not a whit shove them intellectually or morally. Il any of our honest and intelligent Germans or oth er foreign born ciltxens can consort and vote with a party that austaina a pre thai indulgea in auch ungenerous aspersion, it is their own affair, not curs. By doing so they will acknowledge, aa to themselves individually, the justice of such left-hsnJed compliments. We don't believe they will stultify themselves Ihu. Ignorant and confiding men among them may he deceiv ed and vole with their caluinniatora for black republicans and pretended democrats, but wc are very aure that thinking and well informed f oreigner will be very clear of doing so. Evausville Enquirer. OCyWa have already referred to Judge Douglas's speech at Rellville, on Friday laat. We five below an rxtract fiom hia reply to the welcome speech on that occasion, which will bs read whith pleasure by sll good Dem ocrat. Judge V. thus Bxe ms identity a ith ihe Democratic organisation snd its principles: The Democratic party has a great miaaion to perform. A few yeara ago thcrs were two national partiea in lbs land, both of which proclaimed their principle a like in the North and in the South. The old Whig party could proclaim in Kentucky and Mas sachusetts, snd ao could ths Democrscy. Now the Whig party ia no more, but a sec tional party haa been formed to taks ita place, which confine itself aolely to one section snd ia making war upon ths other. Under the circumatancc it become the patriotic duty of every national man, of eve ry friend of the Union, to rally under the 'Democratic banner and support the only party whose principle know no North, no Booth, no East, no West, but th whole Union and the common good of all our citizen. (Immen applause.) My whole life haa been Identified with that great National Democratic party; all the energies I have been abls to command, have been devoted to its cause, and I never desired and never expect any honor or promotion or hope for my own aggrandisement thai is not ths spoatsnsoas gift of that party with which I havs always been idcotificd. What is gained by it? Suppose s Democ-atic nominee Is not very much acceptable to you personally, is t an evidence of democracy to refuse to vote for him on that account! Do you not profess that s majority should rule! If, therefore, a majority of delagatea of the par ty decide that a certain man ahall be s can didate, although objectionable to you, ought you not to aupport him? Had the man been nominated to whom you were favorable, oth er member of the party might hav had ob jection to him on personal ground, yet you would have denounced them as not good democrata had they refuaed to aupport your friend had he received th nomination. "A yc would that men ahould do unto you, do ye even o unto them." Brook. Dem. (7"To thoae Republican who profess to fear that the Engliah bill will keep Kansas out of the Union because abe ha not a pop ulation sufficient to meet ita requirements, we commend the following document. It was drawn up to Induce aom Republicans to vote for the Crittenden bill who were rather disposed trgo sgainat it.

AG R t Ills TUB A L. Productive Farms. To a person out familiar with the history and statistics of t nglith hot Landry, the surprising productiveness of thu lands of that conn try will ap- of the cultivated lands in England and Ireland sre rented to tenants who pay usually from four to five pounds star ling (about $25) per acre annual rent. Where is the Immer in this country who could "livo" under auch a bur den? Here, s farm containing from eigh ty to a hundred acres is often rented fur one hundred and fifty dollars arid sometimes lese snd even st this rate the tenant hss a hard tssk! The cultivation, even where titers are a large number of acres, in grass, will little more than pay ths rent snd tax es; but in England the result is widely different. The tenant who there pays five pounds sterling per acre, annual rent, and finds all appliances, obtains not only the means uf a comfortable Hubeiatenee, but wealth, from tho pros ecution of a calling which here would doom him to want snd destitution, and ultimately death, unless assisted by the town. In 1311, Mirwin estimated the pro duet) of one English farm of eight hundred and ninety acres at $38,000! lite quantity ot manure applied was thirteen thousand seven hundred and turty-six one horse cart loada in one year, ana ten tnonsana two uunarea and fifty the next! ow, admitting the rent of this farm to be but $12 per sere, and the cost of the manure and its application 812 more, and if to these sums wsadd, for interest or expeuses, taxes and va rious contingent expenses of cultiva tion, &C-, $12 innre, weahallfiud, up on striking the balance, that there will remain a profit uf $10 per acre amounting in the gross aggregate to the sum of $10,000 clear gain tothe occupant in a single vear! In the vicinity of London a hay farm, comprising one hundred and sixty acres was, rented. The rental, in this instance, was $12 per acre amounting in all to $1.02 per year. A heavy expenditure wss required for manureprobably as much as many a New England farmer would have been willing to give for the fee simple of the land, and yet the tenant succeeded, and has become wealthy, and with no other income than the produce derived from this one farm. In Ireland a poor tenant had one acre of land, erected a cottage, pur chased manure and farming tools, and the first year cleared all expenses, and had a balance of forty dollars left. And yet that Irish peasant, in addition to the expenses and outlays above enumerated, had a church tax to pay and be at the expense of purchasing his own seed, and maintaining a family of four besides himself and wife! In this country we cultivate too much land. Were we to concentrate our energies noon one quarter of the soil, we should derive greater profit from our labor, and instead ot exhaus ting our farms, should keep them in a condition of constant improvement. Look where we may, we find that the independent farmers the ' good liv ers"of the country are, in nine east in ten, the occupants of small farma. New England Farmer. AnvicE to Farmers.
